Winner of the 2016 'Who Is Looking At You Portrait Prize'

I'm over the moon to have found out that my painting of Dr Gemma Olsson has won the 2016 'Who Is Looking At You Portrait Prize' hosted by Cambridge Studio Gallery in Collingwood, Melbourne.

The prize was judged by Goodwin Bradbeer and Yvette Coppersmith - two artists whose work I admire immensely. This is a great honour, and I'm incredibly grateful to Susan Gibson and Ness Alexandra from Cambridge Studio Gallery, Dr Olsson, the judges and all the wonderful finalists in this competition.

The portrait was also recently the subject of a news story in the Parramatta Sun and the Western Sydney Local Health District News.

I'll be holding a solo exhibition at Cambridge Studio Gallery in early 2017.
